Just 2 moms chasing their dreams, while raising 6 kids, chasing their dreams.. early mornings, late nights, 100's of kms 🚗...if there's one thing we both know, it's that nothing worth anything comes easy. hard work, perseverance, and believing in your vision, no matter what the critics say, or who's throwing you under the bus behind your back... don't stop.. don't ever stop.. believe in yourself and your dreams, and they will to. ✨✨✨#yesyoucan 👊👊#momdreamsarereal

To all the new mamas out there, this is a loving reminder to...slow down. be kind to yourself. to breath more deeply. to stop judging your post baby body, and instead marvel at the incredible little person it just created. to stop stressing about the laundry, and your messy kitchen. to say "no" when you can't, and "help" when you need it. to enjoy the quiet moments, and know the hard ones will pass. to savour the beauty of what is now. can hardly believe how fast minnie's first 2.5 years have gone.. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ #lovethebabyphase

Mama, this is a reminder...you don't have to know how to do everything. you don't have to be perfect. you can make lots of mistakes.
forgive yourself 🙏
this is a journey that has no instruction manual and no direction. some days you just get dinner on the table.
we beat ourselves up when the laundry piles high. it's okay, you're allowed to forget to mow the lawn (geeze... i don't even know how to mow a lawn...)
this job is no joke. being a mama is hard *ish some days!! but we are here with you. 😘 #saynotomomguilt
We do, we really do. is it just us? we love social media, but some days it's hard, seeing so much disingenuous being celebrated. please don't compare yourself to all the perfect you're seeing everywhere. the perfect stories, the perfect white kitchens, the perfect parenting tips, the perfect life advice--especially from those who don't even live by their advice to others. remember to take time to just step back and unplug. self care includes putting your phone down, and being present in your life. it feels so good! ❤❤❤
The family photo struggle is real guys!!!
but gosh there is something so sweet about this capture to me. first of all i rocked my first oktoberfest as a single mama. the big moment was when the baby ran into the men's room... i looked around desperately and my sister's husband came to the rescue. it was a moment we both were able to laugh.
but you guys feel me on this picture struggle right!?! one kid is only going to cross their eyes if you force them to take a picture. one will be crying while one is trying to hold down a smile through it all...
either way, i'm soooo freeeeking thankful for the perfectly imperfect picture we took!!
how was your thanksgiving!? #thanksgiving #oktoberfest @kw_oktoberfest
Whenever we meet people they inevitably ask us, "did you guys grow up together"...or "did you grow up as best friends?".. and the answer is "no, we didn't"..if you didn't know this, we were set up on a work "blind date" by a producer, to see if there was a connection... and there was. we've been working together since that day. we basically skipped the friend card, and are more like sisters. and like sisters we have ups and downs. we have incredible times, and we've had really hard times together, and in our personal lives throughout this partnership. we don't always agree, and if we're being honest we've had some pretty good arguments. but it just seems no matter what we go through together, the universe keeps us close. it's almost impossible to explain this bond we have. but whatever it is know this, friendships don't have to be "perfect" all the time. it's okay and normal to disagree, and have struggles with friends. some relationships are just worth the fight. sometimes, forgiveness and acceptance is all it takes. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
